The World Is Divided And Lays In Broken Heaps...
Because Man Is Divided Within Himself. 
The world is going to hell in a handbasket, and MEN are to blame.  
Especially.... straight, white, traditional men in America and the West.  

There is no end to the amount of hate, blame and victimhood directed at men today. 

Men, it seems, are the cause of a long list of tyrannies, oppression and violence.  And the victim groups whom lay blame with men, only seems to be getting stronger and more hysterical.

If you are a man in America today, understand that you are hated. 

You are hated for your privilege

You are hated for your power

And most of all, you are hated for the very traits and behaviors that make you a man.  

In fact, a recent report by the American Psychological Association says that boys and men who exhibit traditional masculine behavior are at greater risk to themselves and others.  They suggest that "socialization practices which teach boys from an early age to be self-reliant, strong, and to minimize and manage their problems on their own"* may be to blame. 
*Ref. APA Report: "Psychology of Men & Masculinities" by William Ming Liu (January 2018)
Men Are Supposed To Be 
Strong, Stoic & Self-Reliant!
What is wrong with men? 

Why do the very traits that make a man, a man, seem to be the cause of so much concern? 

If everything that men have been for thousands of years is wrong; then why are doctors, schools, the media and women trying to "fix" men now? 

The truth is there is nothing wrong with being a man; especially a so-called "traditional masculine" man.

When men are being men... boundaries are set, agreements are made, and great societies are built. 

When men are being men... risk, working hard, and devotion is valued.

When men are being men... women are relaxed, children are happy, and the weak are protected. 

Men, when we are being real men everyone in society wins.  

No matter what the establishment, media or radical feminists say...  


Alpha Men Are The Great Leaders In This World
Without the risks, responsibilities and sacrifices made by strong Alpha Male leaders nothing in this world would be built. 

Weak-willed men and whiny women did not build America.

Nor have any angry, envious, hateful social justice warriors ever created anything good.  A
ll they do is eat, shit, complain, blame and destroy.   

Alpha males.

Traditional Masculinity.

Great men. 

Men who are willing to sacrifice and stand strong in the face of evil will always be the great leaders in this world. 

There is no such thing as "toxic masculinity".

Only men who have been misrepresented, miseducated and misled. 

But all that is about to end. 

When Our Grandfathers Were Alive
Before the breakdown of the traditional family, easy divorce and abortion;   

Before fuck buddies, radical feminists, and fatherless boys;

Before skyrocketing suicide rates, attention deficit disorder, and Incels

Men knew exactly what it meant to be a man. 

Because older men (fathers, uncles, grandfather and family friends) understood just how critical is was for young men to be mentored, mirrored and informed about who they are, and why they exist. 

Our great grandfathers, ancestors, understood that men of all ages have a primal hunger for meaning in our lives. 

No "Safe Spaces" For Men
Today there are dozens of so-called victim groups, who require safe spaces, a shelter away from harm. 

These people are often merely "victims" of other people's opinions and judgements.  Safe spaces provide a container where these people can feel their feelings, and fear their "oppressors".

But what about men? 

Men are under attack.

If you don't believe me, then just look at what men have become in the last 50 years.   

The rate of male suicide is between 5 and 6 times that of females. According to the National Academy of Sciences, "the increase in suicide among white males led to as many white males' lives lost to suicide as have been lost to AIDS.

Black males, while only 6% of the overall population, make up over 43% of murder victims.  More black boys between ages 10 - 20 are killed each day by homicide than by the next nine leading causes of death combined.

What has been the establishment's response to the crisis of men? - Prison. 

Prison spending in America has increased at 5 times the rate of spending per grade school student. The last I heard, the state of California spends around $75,000 per inmate, per year to keep men behind bars.

It should also be noted that almost 40% of boys in America live in a fatherless home. 

If a boy does live with his father, there is a good chance the father is a beta-male provider who acts like one of the kids with his wife.  Just like the dads on popular culture TV and mainstream media - he is weak, dumb and helpless.

Men are literally becoming women. 

Female hormones in our drinking water from birth-control pill piss, they say.  Estrogen compounds from plastics and pesticides are in the food we eat; make men more womanly and weak. 

Men are emotional, skinny-fat and soft.

Men are without meaning, and without a mission. 

Men are without mature, masculine mentorship.

"The world is divided and lays in broken heaps, because man is divided within himself." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Uniting Man Within Himself
The splits and divisions we see in the world outside, is a reflection of man's split on this inside. 

If we are ever to unify the world, we must first seek to unify the man first. 
 
Men are conflicted.  

Much of the conflict is confusion about Who we are, and Why we're here.  

Timeless questions like this, always arrive in a timely way.  What I mean is, there are predictable transition phases in a man's life.  

I refer to these transition phases, as "Life Path Initiation" phases, since it's a normal part of life.  It is during theses times in a man's life that he is leaving behind his old ways, and is initiated into a new version of himself.  

But during the transition most men will feel fragmented. These dark times can leave a man confused. He begins questioning himself, and his existence. 

Life Path Initiation phases occur every 12 years or so.  

At age 12 a boy is becoming a young man, as puberty is happening.

In my personal experience, and in my work with men, age 24 initiates a new chapter in a man's life. It's often referred to as a quarter-life crisis. 

In the years surrounding his 24th birthday a young man will confront his childish hopes, fears and dream; in order to adopt a newer, and hopefully, wiser way of being.

He is being initiated. 

Having passing my 36 year-old birthday, I can tell you... 

Life gets very confusing, chaotic and lonely during these Life Path Initiation phases of the journey. 

When Life Is Kicking You In The Ass
The question isn't whether you've been initiated, or not. 

Life initiates you, it's happening!

 It can happen when you're 14, 24, or 42 years old. It usually begins with a crisis, or call to action. 

The key question is...  

What to do when life is initiating you up hard, up the ass?! 
 
There was once a time when men who were being initiated by life had a support structure, a "sacred space" and wise men to see him through the transition. 

Today, there is no support, no sympathy and no new perspectives for the man in need.

He will either "man up and do the right thing", or he might blow his brains out with revolver, like so many white men in America do.    

What men need today is a return to the initiation ritual, meaningful rights of passage, and a sacred space for becoming whole again, united within. 

When we are united within, strength and stability is restored.  There heightened sense of meaning, and devotion to our mission in life.

There is more trust, more calm, and more love in our lives. 

The Four Corners Of Initiation
When I speak about initiation, I do not mean taking boys into the jungle to hunt lions with bare hands, and a stick. Men are not initiated by other men - life initiates men. 

What I mean is a return to the basic understanding that when life begins to initiate someone, a friend, sibling, spouse or yourself, that it's not the end of the world

In fact, it is a normal and natural part of life, and... 

There is road map for how to navigate a successful initiation, given to us by our ancestors. I discovered this "road map" while going through my own life's path initiation (more about that later). 

According to anthropologists, all men's initiation rituals regardless of culture, possess the following four qualities - what I refer to as the Four Corners Of Initiation. 

Sacred Space
For focused "soul work" do be done, men need to set themselves apart.  Away from work, away from women and away from the cares of the world.

A Sacred Space is like a container, a hot oven, where transformation can occur.  When all participants are present and fully engaged with the process, trust and meaningful bonds are forged in what anthropologist Mercer Eliade calls "communitas".

It is only within the sacred space of containment that men's egos begin to soften, and understanding can be mirrored, delivered, from the group.
 
Initiation Process
An Initiation Process is like a challenge, a right's of passage.

When life initiates you, it can be painful, but you MUST keep going.  You'll need strength, stamina and grit to get through this.

An initiation process will put you to the test.  It will force you to face your demons, and take stock of your weakness.  

Far from helping you solve your problems, an initiation process more like stirring up the bottom of a dirty pool so the junk could be filtered out.  

Male Mentorship
Most secular male mentorship these days are like the blind leading the blind. 

Instead of battle hardened men, bearing wounds and delivering wisdom to the youth; we have doctors with pills and an establishment that says masculinity is an illness. 

Male Mentors are like the ritual elders and wise men of old. They've been to hell and back, and can show you the road.  They also have deep compassion for younger men, men on their way up. 

Life Meaning
Your life's path initiation is successful when a sense of meaning is restored in a life.  After a season of confusion and chaos, the fog begins to lift and clarity emerges. 

I believe there is great meaning to be found in suffering.  Suffering softens the ego, and creates room for growth.

Initiation is about death and rebirth.  We are free to choose darkness and death; or be resurrected in the light of God, at any moment.

Every day there is an opportunity for a new life, a new mission, and renewed sense of meaning for you.  This is what Jesus meant when he said "be born again". 
Like I mentioned earlier, I learned about these four corners of initiation while going through one of the darkest times of my life. 

I believe that had I not discovered this truth, I would not be here speaking with you today. 

"Becoming The Strongest Version Of Yourself"
My name is Elliot Hulse. 

I am a Strongman, Strength Coach and owner of Strength Camp Gym in Florida. My job is to teach men how to grow stronger.

Since 2007 I have been coaching men to build muscle and strength in the gym.

I am also famous for my YouTube videos that teach men how to "Become The Strongest Version Of Themselves" - in the gym, and in life. 

My YouTube channels have massed over 1 billion views and over 2.7 million subscribers.

I am like a father figure or big brother to a generation of young men. 

Although I am proud of all the young men who have succeeded in life by following my advice.... something important was missing. 


If I were really to be the great mentor that people believed I was, then I needed to undergo a life's path initiation of my own.

So it happened... 

In 2015, at 36 years of age, a sudden confusion and chaos began to envelop my life.

I stopped uploading YouTube videos, and closed the doors to my gym. For the next four years I experienced the darkest, most lonely and confusing days of my life.  

First, my body began to break down and I suffered several physical injuries including two torn biceps muscles, a severe neck injury and a ruptured achilles tendon. 

In what felt like an instant, my big strong physical frame was completely deflated. I was weak and I was wounded. I lost all confidence in myself. 

I also suffered from bouts of depression and delusion; I didn't know who I was any longer. I had lost all sense of meaning in my life, and I felt all alone.

Those dark days taught me the most enlightening lessons I've ever learned.  They also gave me the tools to help other men along their way, on their life's initiation path. 

Every man's initiation leads him onto a new life's path.

For me, a new sense of devotion to my family, as a husband and a father, was restored.  I also found renewed meaning and a mission in my work as a coach and mentor to men

That is why I am holding a 3-day men's life path initiation event.
Upstate New York | June 7-9 2019 
Initiating Men, Onto A New Life's Path
Grounding Camp is a Sacred Space, a time and a place set aside, for men's life path initiation.  Here, men can discuss matters important to men, and hold ourselves accountable for transformation. 

At Grounding Camp we follow an Initiation Process that includes OSHO Active Meditations, and bioenergetic exercises for letting-go, un-stifling, and removing the blocks to our greatness.  These exercises are uncomfortable and challenging; a real test of strength and resolve.

During your 3-day Grounding Camp experience I will be your Mentor.  With over twenty years of experience coaching, motivating and mentoring men, I am well equipped to support you even in the toughest of times.  I also have several years of  professional training and experience in "mind-body" exercises, active meditation, and bioenergetics.  

Finally, Grounding Camp is a way to scatter the clouds of chaos and confusion in your life, so that the light of true understanding and Life's Meaning, for you, can shine though. 

Grounding Camp is about "uniting the world, by uniting man within himself". 

Grounding Camp is a "safe space" where men can be strong, and self-reliant without apology. 

Grounding Camp is about being an Alpha Male, masculine leader in your life. 

Grounding Camp is an initiation into a newer, wiser and stronger version of yourself.

How Much Does It Cost?
If you're going cross the threshold and restore meaning in your life, you've got to be willing to invest in yourself. 

Personally, I've spent over $200,000 on mentoring, coaching, personal development, workshops, camps and more in just the last few years.

But this is different…

This is more than just an opportunity to learn a few fancy ideas, have a good time with other like-minded men, and go home with a participation trophy.

This is an initiation into NEW LIFE, a new way of being. 

Your tuition fee is very much a part of the initiation.  If you're not willing to stretch your wallet to achieve greatness in life, then you're probably not likely to stretch your mind and push your body to the limits during our Grounding Camp event.

The cost for getting together with myself and like-minded friends for three full days, growing stronger, out in nature is $1,997.

But you can save up to $500 if you register today.
